One Thousand North is a piece for wind ensemble inspired by a farm fifty miles west of Indianapolis, IN outside the small town of Roachdale. Out there lies an old country road known to the locals as West County Road 1000 North. Along this road, each passing field, barn, and house has its own story filled with family history. My family's farm is no exception to this, with the farm being in the family for over fifty years I am proud of where I call home. Picture a place where bird songs are always heard, your nearest neighbor is down the road and around the corner, and the idea of rush hour traffic is being stuck behind a tractor; with these ideas in mind welcome to One Thousand North.
